  • In Van:
    • The needs of women in villages will be assessed via home visits.
    • Information seminars will be organized in villages with the support of key actors such as local headmen, religious leaders, lawyers.
    • Painting contests for children will be held and banners and billboard advertising will be used in order to create awareness throughout the city.
